but believe me my baton would put you down hard.
and why do you say that the chances are that i would be the weaker of my attacker?
Dude your 19. I doubt you are going to be able to stand up to a hardened criminal. I am not calling you weak or anything.
Your batton has a reach of what 3.5 feet. You would have to hit them in the head. Your batton travels at about 20 feet per second with a hiting mass of about 2 pounds. A 45 has a range of about 60 yards and travels about 900 feet per second with a hiting weight of about 400 grains and will go into you.
You do the math. Plus a 45 is alot smaller.
War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature, and has no chance of being free unless made or kept so by the exertions of better men than himself John Stuart Mill
